This is a script that I released a long time ago, then my server crashed and I never got to putting this script back up. Javascript Date, as you can tell, shows todays date in an easy-to-read format. This is a favorite of personal pages because it tells the viewer info about the outside world. Professional homepages use this with CGI script to get info about how many people came on a specific day.

var today = new Date()
var month = today.getMonth() + 1
var day = today.getDate()
var year = today.getFullYear()
var s = "/" = month + s + day + s + year
